Title: Intro Asian American Studies
Course Section Number: ASI-112-01F
Department: Asian Studies
Description: This course will introduce students to the history, methodology, and major issues of Asian American Studies through an interdisciplinary survey of historical texts, literature, film, and cultural theory. Since the start of the pandemic, anti-Asian rhetoric and hate crimes have soared. We will contextualize this recent wave of violence within the nation's history, highlight the many contributions of Asian Americans to our society, and invite comparison among social justice movements more broadly. The course will engage themes such as Orientalism, diaspora, political activism, and cultural representation, centering a range of Asian American perspectives, including individuals who identify as women or nonbinary, LGBTQIA, disabled, or undocumented.
